Abstract

When performing traditional abdominoplasty, three fundamental defects of the abdominal wall must always be addressed by the plastic surgeon. They include redundant skin, excess fat, and musculofascial laxity. Plastic surgeons have found that this procedure consists of dermolipectomy and rectus plication, extremely effective in restoring the abdomen to its youthful shape in the vast majority of patients. This article will review the recent advancements in body contouring surgery while focusing on the recent technical refinements in abdominoplasty.
